A fleet of electric vehicles (EV) has been offered, free of charge, by EV supply and installation company, SYMPHONY Electric Vehicles Zero Emissions for a Greener Future, for use by community groups, hospitals and charities to make deliveries of food and essential medical provisions.
The vehicles can be charged at one of the network of charge points across the region or by an ordinary domestic 13amp socket, making it easy to keep them operational during this time. In addition, councils across the Liverpool City Region have offered use of their depot charging points and, where possible, use of further vehicles if demand increases.
SYMPHONY also has secure storage at a number of sites across the City Region which it can make available if needed.
John Robinson, Managing Director of SYMPHONY EV-ZE said, “We have around thirty vehicles currently stood down from usual day to day operation, so it makes sense to offer them to those organisations who need them. We would usually be installing and maintaining charge points at hospitals, hence we have H&S clearance to enter the sites, which should simplify things if we are called upon to help with deliveries.
“We are already working with a number of foodbanks, helping them to distribute to those in need, and we have capacity to do more. As community groups mobilise in the coming weeks, my offer is there for the vehicles to be used if they can make a difference.”
If you are interested in volunteering to help, or your organisation would like to apply for use of a vehicle, please email firstname.lastname@example.org giving a brief outline of your interest.
